Tagging in Legacy

Tagging in Legacy helps me keep track of projects and direct line ancestors.  There are advanced tagging options for individuals and marriages.


In the image above on Joseph Thomas you can see that he is tagged on #1, #4 and #9 and in the marriage section there are not tags.

The image below shows what the advanced tagging window looks like.  If you right click on the tags (see above image) the Advanced Tagging window will open.



In the image to the left, is a close up view of the Advanced Tagging window.  #1 is the individual person whose tags you right clicked on to open the Advanced Tagging window.  Clicking on change will bring up another window where you can choose a different person.  #2 shows what tags are active for the individual.  If you click on a tag number you can make that tag active for the individual.  #3 is where you can make changes to other peoples tags without going to each individual person.  #4 is where you put the tag descriptions.  Make sure you don't skip this step so you know why you have people tagged on certain numbers.  #5 lets you choose three tags that will show up in lists (when you create a search list the three tags will show up in your list of people).  In the image above you can see that Joseph Thomas is tagged on 1, 4 and 9.  Tag #1 means he is in my husband's direct line, #4 tells me that I need to add a Find A Grave event, and #9 tells me that something needs to be done...in this case there are to dos that need to be taken care of so I can fill in some Events.

My tags change often as I work on projects.  Right now I am trying to figure out what Rutan's belong to my Alvah Rutan so they are all unlinked from my tree in Legacy and tagged on #8 so I can find them quickly.  I have also been trying to clean up some messes in my database so I tagged everyone in my database on #9 and when I come across people tagged on #9 I will figure out what needs to be done and delete the tag once it has been taken care of; there are a few that don't need anything done so I just delete the tag.  I also use tagging when I am creating search lists to help narrow down my people even more.

How do you use the tagging feature in Legacy??

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division
